A New Transcription of Adam Brouwer's Will

I've placed online a new transcription of Adam Brouwer's will (dated 22 Jan 1691/92). This transcription was done by Steven Matthew Hahn.

Transcription of the will of Adam Brower Berkhoven, 22 Jan 1691/2 (by Steven Matthew Hahn)

This can be compared with my own transcription which was placed online a few years back. Although the substance is no different, the new transcription by Steve does a better job of transcribing details of the original, such as capitalization, punctuation and spelling. The names in the will have been published in bold print and are therefore easier to find.

Thanks to Steve Hahn for the contribution.
